The Glenridge neighborhood of Los Gatos s one of the most scenic residential areas anywhere in Silicon Valley. It features beautiful, custom, mostly historic homes on meandering streets. Set just above the Almond Grove neighborhood on a gentle hill it, too is close to town but with a little more altitude and better vistas.
Bachman Park is set in this area too and includes several acres alongside a creek. The park offers picnic tables, a playground, basketball courts and a large grassy field for picnics or play. A paved path follows the creek on one side of it – making a wonderful place just for strolling.
Where is the Glenridge area? What are the prices for Glenridge real estate?
This charming older Los Gatos neighborhood is set just up the hill from the Almond Grove Historic District and adjacent to Fairview Plaza. The main road for which the area takes its name is Glenridge Avenue, but there are several streets up on that hill including those near Bachman Park which are included in the area. Here’s a list of streets which are part of the Glenridge neighborhood. I’m not sure that the area has super clear boundaries – some people might argue that a few more streets ought to be included (such as Overlook and homes a bit further out). Where it ends seems to be somewhat unclear.
Included in this residential area: Glenridge Avenue, Bachman Avenue, Peralta Avenue, Hernandez Avenue, Apricot Lane, Pennsylvania Avenue, Belmont Avenue, Alexander Avenue, Palm Avenue, Walnut Avenue, Wissahickon Avenue.
How much does it cost to buy a home in the Glenridge area? What are Glenridge real estate prices like?
Glenridge real estate is pricey! Do not expect to find much under $3 million in this area. There have been “fixers” sold for more! Pricing depends on many things, including of course the location within the neighborhood. Glenridge Drive is very prestigious and a stately house with large frontage there will command top dollar, assuming that the property is in good shape (many of these homes have lovely views). There are properties with small lots, or narrow ones, or a few on very steep lots (even on Glenridge) and usually these will not sell for as much unless there’s something very compelling such as a great view. As homes get into more remote areas, for example going deep into Overlook, prices will come down.
